Threaded Rods are long rods that are fully threaded from end to end. They are similar to the threaded portion of a bolt but are much larger and do not feature a head. Also known as threaded bars, all-thread, and threaded studs, threaded rods are used to join and stabilize structures or objects, often into ceilings or walls. Threaded rods come in multiple rod sizes, grades, materials, and coatings to fit all application needs.
Since threaded rod has threading running their entire length, they can fully engage nuts or other female-threaded components, such as coupling nuts. This makes threaded rod excel at tension applications specifically.
For tension applications, a threaded rod may find frequent use alongside coupling or reducer nuts. Coupling nuts offer the ability to connect multiple threaded rods together. Reducer coupling nuts offer the ability to couple different rod sizes. Threaded rods are often used with coupling nuts in tension assemblies and anchors to stabilize or hang structures.
All-thread rod is commonly used in plumbing, construction, and maintenance applications where a system needs to be raised or stabilized. It is often used to hang piping for sprinkler systems, plumbing systems, or electrical systems where wires or piping needs to be raised and out of the way.
Available Materials, Coatings, & Lengths
Metric Threaded Rods are available in zinc plated steel or A2 stainless steel. Suppose your threaded Rods are visible to outside elements. In that case, we recommend stainless steel to avoid any corrosion. Zinc plating can also be used to prevent corrosion, though stainless steel will provide greater corrosion-resistance. Zinc plating is usually used for aesthetic purposes.
All threaded rod in this selection are available in one meter lengths.

What is threaded rod used for?
Threaded rods have various applications, effectively being used as a pin to fasten or connect two materials together. They are also used as supports to stabilize structures in some applications.
How is metric threaded rod measured?
Threaded rod is measured Diameter-Threading x Length. For example, you may find a threaded rod measuring M8-1.25 x 1 Meter. The M8 (8mm) is the rod's diameter, the 1.25 means that there is a 1.25mm distance between each thread, and the 1 meter is how long the rod is. Most metric-sized threaded rod is available in one meter lengths.
How do you join two threaded rods together?
Couplings nut are used to join two threaded rods together. If the threaded rods are different thread sizes, a reducer nut or reducing coupling nut can be used instead.
What is a threaded rod called?
Threaded rods are also known as threaded studs, all-thread, and threaded bars.
Can you cut threaded rod?
If the standard 6-foot or 3-foot lengths aren't quite what you need, you can cut the threaded rod to size. We recommend a cold-cut chop saw for a cleaner cut, but you can use an abrasive saw or hacksaw instead if you want. Just be sure to either file the cut area down or use a chamfering tool until you can fasten a nut on the end of the rod.
